Heather, Lucky and Rico - not in that order.
Heather started out with one dog. The river is SUPER windy, like a corner every 100ft or so, it's so much fun! You have to pay attention, because I also like to leave "obstacles" (for the humans) up - like low-hanging trees and branches on the ground, wicked corners around fallen trees, "jumps" over fallen branches, etc. Gotta keep your head up! I don't want to get bored out there. Heather mentioned she was falling on some corners, so I stood waiting around a particularly sharp one. Here's what happened:
Yes, I do believe she called me a "bastard" for catching it on video. hahahaha!! And I only like watching people fall because I tend to do it myself quite a bit.
Look at that pro! What a team.
Not only can I take photos, video, delete photos/video, all while skijoring, I can also take a pic of me in motion. Such talent, ha!
Those pesky low-hanging branches. That one, I noticed on the way back, had a sharp little twig poking out STRAIGHT DOWN!! Oops! That's known as a head impaler or a backpack grabber. It must go, as I like my friend's heads intact.
And one of the distractions you don't want the dogs to get excited about - squirrels in the trees!! I love how Jack and Harris' tails are all waggy with excitement!!! I mean, MY GOD IT'S A SQUIRREL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah, and I'm not sure why I sound like a character from "Fargo" here, but it is what it is...
This isn't a wipeout, just a... rest break! :)
After skijoring, it was time for shooting practice! Notice my home-made "shooter tutor" - it's awesome. Heather is working on perfecting her soon-to-be-amazingly-intimidating slapshot! Watch out other teams!!!
Yes, we are addicted to skijoring, dogs and hockey. Fantastic combo on a beautiful day!!!
